Challenge card......

Wow! The days are flying can it be more than half way through April?? Oh well...

I am doing something very new for me :-) I have made a card to enter into more than one challenge! I usually don't look to see if I can do it, but today I took the time and I was pleasantly surprised to see it can be done fairly easy! I guess I went with the challenge with a sketch to start, because I was looking at several and only the Love to Create Challenge Blog had a sketch to follow. It is a birthday card for a girlfriend, so it satisfied the requirements of using the sketch and for a friend.

Ugh ... not in the right order and my usual editing software was on the fritz tonight so I am not entirely happy with the quality of the pics. I did something else that I don't do very often any more. I used a Cricut cartridge, A Walk in my Garden, to cut out the pieces. When my old laptop died, I lost my Design Studio and now I seldom go to the carts. So, any hoo, I cut everything from Walk in my Garden except the grass from Zoobaloo. I used a Recollections card, some pattern paper that I picked up in a baby kit at Walmart a loooong time ago, inked edges and tied on a tag stamped with My Thoughts Exactly "Sprinkled with Birthday Wishes". On the inside, I stamped a flower and 'Happy B-day to you' from an Inkadinkado set I won a while back, then added 'girlfriend' from the Family and Friends set by My Pink Stamper.

I made a boo boo on this card that I could not correct easily :-( Anyone who can tell me what it is, will get a little treat from me! I will reward at least 2 ... if more than that guess correctly, I will have to draw the name. I just hope you don't see a lot more mistakes than the one bothering me!!! LOL! I will see if I get any guesses over a few days??

Here is the list of the other challenges I am entering:
Creative Inspirations Paint (inspired by Spring)
Made Esecially for You (use 3 flowers)
Die Cuttin' Divas (gardens)
Paper Playtime (birthday with a sentiment)

There may have been one more, but I don't have the list next to me :-) I must say it was kind of fun to make one card to satisfy several challenges :-) Until tomorrow....
